I'm faking!!!

Morning All!

Well....the Make It! show was just brilliant, I had a brilliant time and spent LOADS of money! I'm pleased to say that my friend Becca also enjoyed herself and even bought some bits and pieces! The show wasn't as big as it was a couple of years ago, but if it had been bigger I would probably have bought more!!

So, today I've decided to be a faker! Over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge they set us the challange of using stitches on our projects - either real ones or fake ones! Take a look at the lovely DT cards here. As you know I love experimenting and I've produced a lot of cards recently with (wonky) stitching this time I decided to fake it and add drawn stitches.......what do you think......

This is a cute little card that would also work with an ice cream as the image - anything with a cute cherry on the top!

I've used a gorgeous light blue backing paper and made the little cupcake out of paper scraps. I attached the cupcake to the middle of the card before embellishing with a little glitter glue.

I made the sentiment on my computer and backed it with some more blue paper before adding it to the card as well.

Then I finally added the fake stitching, which I drew around the edge. The funny thing is that my fake stitches are just as wonky as my sewn stitches!! At least I'm consistent!

I've always liked making cupcake cards, I think they are so cute. At the moment they are also right on trend - cupcakes seems to be everywhere....not just in crafting. There are cupcake shops popping up everywhere, my sister had cupcakes as her wedding cake and you can now take classes especially dedicated to making these gorgeous little creations!! Woo hoo - I'm fashionable! Ha, ha! It doesn't happen very often!!

Anyway, I'd love to get this card on my Birthday - its cute, bright and makes me smile. It's my Dad's Birthday today....not sure he'd appreciate it, bit too girlie for I've made him a card with a computer console on! Happy Birthday Dad - not sure you'll ever find my blog, but just in case you do!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope the sun is shining where ever you are in the world!
